Due to increasing cases of coronavirus infection, strictness has increased in Delhi-NCR, while the farmers are adamant on the insistence of a complete withdrawal of all three central agricultural laws. At the same time, the drivers are not able to go to Delhi via UP Gate due to the protest demonstration going on at the UP Gate against the three agricultural laws. In fact, the Delhi Traffic Police has closed several routes due to Coronavirus infection and farmers' sit-in demonstration. In such a situation, the drivers of Ghaziabad have to go through other boundaries. This is causing them a lot of trouble. Now a complaint has been made in this case with Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and the police officer. It has been said that due to the closure of many avenues, the problems of the people of Ghaziabad have increased, so appropriate steps should be taken in this regard.
Vehicle drivers are adopting long-alternate routes, both time and money
On the other hand, due to the closure of the lane going to UP Gate on Friday, the drivers were sent to Delhi from the boundaries of Khoda, EDM Mall, Maharajpur, Chandra Nagar, Giani Border, Bhopura etc. Passengers faced problems due to the deteriorating Pushta road connecting the Khoda border. There was the pressure of vehicles on the Maharajpur border. This upset the drivers. At the same time, in view of the situation, it does not seem that this problem will be solved in the coming time.
